Danielle Kraese is a humor writer, author, editor, and freelance dog petter.
Her cowritten feminist joke book, Jokes To Offend Men, is out now (inspired by the viral McSweeney’s piece “Jokes I’ve Told That My Male Colleagues Didn’t Like”). Vulture named it the #2 comedy book of 2022, and New York Magazine classified it as “highbrow brilliant” in its Approval Matrix. You can get a copy here!
Her short humor has been published by the New Yorker, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, Reductress, The Belladonna, Points in Case, Slackjaw, and Weekly Humorist. Her unfunny writing can be found in a whole bunch of other places.
Danielle studied journalism at a top party school and had a great time. After graduating, she worked a dozen or so character-building jobs before spending several years in book publishing. During that time, she was surprised by how many of her doctors tried to push their manuscripts on her mid-exam (it was two, but that’s two too many when you’re in a paper robe). Now, she’s a commerce editor at BDG and can tell you everything you never wanted to know about socks, sheets, and meat thermometers.
